Trying some long exposures of flowers dancing in the breeze. Stacked ND8 and ND4 filters.

Very intriguing - good thinking, nice effect. Simple measures, great result.

Too right ... In fact, in spite of having "inhaled" quite a bit of water today, it never seems to be enough.

I'm not sure I'd like to use these ... hilarious, but bugs just ain't my thing, I guess (I know they're probably ants - doesn't make enough of a difference ...).

Today a package arrived with an addition to my Minolta SR-mount 28mm lenses collection. And here's my usual setup for photographing lenses; the camera is a Sony A7, the lens is a Minolta Auto Bellows 4/100mm on a Minolta Auto Bellows III. Lighting is with 2 cheap FalconEyes studio flashes and the table is from Novoflex (bought used, that stuff is frighteningly expensive).

No, that's round the back of the Rocks. It would be handy to be living in Leichhardt when an SIJ was on wouldn't it.
Sure would. Norton and Marion Streets would give a heap of excellent opportunities. Also being close to the old Rozelle Hospital grounds (I used to work there, back then)... a heap of fabulous old buildings.

GAS comes in many forms. I've long had a habit of getting into a complicated DIY project, buying this or that tool, and putting it in storage when the project is over. I haven't used this tiny belt sander in 10 or even 15 years. I saw a video recently where a guy was using a commercial unit to sand ukulele parts, so inspiration struck. I grabbed a few pieces of scrap plywood from other projects, and put together a stand to hold the belt sander stationary while sanding. I'm going to add a small platform in front of the belt to keep the work pieces square to the sanding belt. Ear plugs are a must - this little thing is noisy!

Star Trek cats? Must get that from someplace.
Think the kids got it from Amazon, or at least I know it's available on Amazon in the US.

The figurines are from South America and the picture is a drawing commissioned from one of the kids friends of a picture I took years ago. Can't remember where the crystal cat came from.

SiJy, Day 18. I overdid things yesterday, so today was about not being on my feet and letting the knee rest and recover. No photos, so this evening I quickly set up a tribute to the camera that convinced me MFT was okay for business. It was not my first digital, but it took awhile for me to be convinced that I could use the MFT sensor and deliver great results to clients and galleries.

The ground-breaking Olympus OM-D E-M5. Nearly the same size as the Olympus OM-1 I had back in my youth. Quick and dirty; glass dining room table and a couple of gridded strobes. Evening, so easy to kill the background (lazy, so no backdrop, just kill the light). Not a finished piece, but I shot an image for this thread today, so there (sticks out tongue and wiggles behind). ;)

I thought of photography today, and I did my assignment of using just the 20mm lens on the E-M5.2. Yay for assignments!! Most time was spent cleaning dust from the front element because, lazy lighting.

:) Went looking as soon as I sent that last post. Ordered that *and* the TNG one right away :)
